Amazon Launches MP3 Sell For Apple Products

Amazon mp3 sellAmazon, the retail giant is all set to take a bite from the huge digital music market that iTunes has been holding for all these years with the opening of its customized MP3 store for iPhone & iPod touch.

The music store is accessible through the Safari browser and at the very beginning boasts 22 million tracks. Also, Amazon’s usual features like discounts, consumer ratings, best selling lists and personalized recommendations etc. will be available.

Customer’s purchase will be saved to Amazon’s Cloud Player Library, but not in the free 5GB storage.

The mobile site is built on HTML5 instead of going for an in-app. So, the customers will be able to buy their music directly from their Apple devices.

The reason behind this move is that Apple gains a 30% cut from all the in-app revenue. The same issue made Amazon and other firms to remove the in-app buying option from their applications.

According to Amazon, various smart deals such as albums for $6, songs for $0.69 and free tracks from up-and-coming singers would be promoted on the website.

In another announcement, Amazon mentioned its soon to be launched service named AutoRip. AutoRip will allow the physical CD buyers to have a cloud MP3 backup of the music purchased via Amazon’s Cloud Player.
